To Publish Or Not To Publish?
That is the question I have for you…
An ad-supported online publication has asked to use one of my images (which has a non-commercial Creative Commons license). They specify that no payment will be offered. Full attribution is given with use and they also will link to my image on flickr (where they found it). Per their proposed agreement I also retain rights to use the photo in any other ways I wish — I’m not granting them any exclusive rights.
Or, should I tell them ‘no’ on principle — no payment, no commercial use of any kind (even if readers are getting the content for free)?
Would love to hear your opinions. Given that I have no axe to grind with this publication (doesn’t bother me that they *ask*) I’m not going to specify who it is.
